CISU Case: 002

Location: Córbola (RO)

Category B: Objects that enter the water or they dive down after making some additional

            maneuvers or they dive down and then re-emerge to disappear in the sky (the way

            that the first contact with the water happens is most important).

Evaluation: Insufficient information

Sighting Description: Una bambina, di circa 12 anni, mentre si recava di mattina e da sola a prendere dell’acqua per uso potabile presso il fiume Po’, vide provenire dall’alto un oggetto luccicante e rotondo, che si inabissò nell’acqua a circa sette metri da lei. Dopo un paio di minuti la testimone vede un gran ribollio nell’acqua e l’oggetto che riemerse, volando via e scomparendo nel cielo. La bambina ebbe anche modo di vedere all’interno dell’oggetto un piccolo uomo che dava l’impressione di essere seduto, essendo visibile solo dal collo in su. I lineamenti del viso erano umani e non aveva una casco. L’oggetto, che emetteva anche un sibilo, aveva un diametro di 2-3 metri. Sicuramente si tratta di uno dei casi di avvistamenti U.S.O. meglio inchiestati in Italia e solo la lontananza nel tempo del fenomeno ne impedisce una qualche valutazione oggettiva.    

Sighting Description: One morning, while a 12 year old girl was going to fetch drinking water at the river Po, she saw a shiny and round object come from the sky. It later crashed in the water seven meters away from her. After a couple of minutes, the witness noticed a big bubble in the water and later the object resurfaced and flew away disappearing in the sky. The girl had the chance to observe the interior of the object and saw a little man who seemed to be seated because he was only visible from the neck and above. The facial features were human looking and he was not wearing a helmet. The object, which emitted a hissing noise, had a diameter of 2-3 meters. For sure this is one of the most investigated U.S.O. sightings in Italy, and only the distance in time of the event prevents an objective evaluation of it.
